Cinnamon Toast Toffee Crunch

It's a new twist on a candy classic! Made with only 5 ingredients.


32 piece


4 cups Cinnamon Toast Crunch® cereal
1 cup butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 (12 ounce) bag semi-sweet chocolate chips (2 cups)
3/4 cup chopped pecans or sliced almonds, toasted


Heat oven to 350°F (177°C). Line 15 x 10 x 1-inch pan with heavy-duty foil. Spray foil with cooking spray. Spread cereal evenly over bottom of foil-lined pan.

In 2-quart saucepan, heat butter and brown sugar. Using whisk, mix butter and brown sugar together as butter melts. Heat to boiling over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium. Boil 2 minutes without stirring. Immediately pour mixture evenly over cereal in pan.

Bake for 12 minutes. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top. Let stand 5 minutes. Spread melted chocolate; top with pecans. Cool completely, about 1 hour. Refrigerate 20 minutes to set chocolate; break into pieces.
